Confessions of a Shoeholic!



Shoes, glorious shoes; I do love thee! Apologies for not writing up this post sooner, it is way overdue! Today I come to you with a lifestyle post for a change, wouldn't want to bore you to death with my rather blinding ensembles. After 2 years of constantly hoarding shoes; a veritable host of them at that, I have come to a point where I just don't have the space to store them anymore. In an attempt to 'fix' this predicament; I have decided to donate some to charity because I can't stop buying.Within the past 2 months, I purchased over 15 pairs of shoes which is absolutely R I D I C U L O U S and has made accept the fact that I have a problem! Ca you blame me? I'm a woman, it's inevitable.




 



     If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen half of these shoes as I tend to share anything new on my Instagram page first. Anyway, I snatched the first pair (Block Heel Shoes) from New Look on sale for just £9! Nothing beats New Look's sales and of course they do have some of the most amazing shoes on the high street. Moving on to those amazing beige cutout sandals which I bought from Topshop whilst on sale from £32 to £18; did you really expect me to leave that?!
    Because I dress quite grungy, I've been into lace up ankle boots lately and what is the best place to find such a pair, New Look of course. I got those black and white boots for just £29.99, I also have the berry version of the exact same boots. The main reason why I'm so obsessed with these is because they are comfortable plus add to my height too *short people problems*. Spring/Summer is all about cute loafers and I've already stocked up. The white pair is definitely my favourite (sorry silver) merely because of the detailing; the gold studs give them some much needed edge and I bought them whilst on sale at Peacocks for £6! Ah yes, the best £6 I've ever spent.  
    Who knows how long I've wanted to own a pair of genuine leather boots; now I do thanks to H&M and their amazing sales! Oh, did I mention that I'm quite the cheapskate as I avoid purchasing anything full price unless I absolutely NEED it. These amazing tan boots went down to £15 from £59.99! I had to buy them, no contest there. Being an avid fan of brogues and all, I've only gone and added 4 more pairs to my ever-growing collection. I adore the black pair because of the gold plating detailing, it gives them character; the brown pair is from New Look (£10), the black and white cutout pair which I literally drool over to this day are from Topshop (Original Price: 32. Sale Price: £18) and finally the berry pair is from Primark (£12). 
The following 5 pairs are all Ebay finds shipped in from China; I'm a little obsessed with shoes from China! I've worn the white pair once and debuted them on this blog already so I'm sure you recognise those. The next three pairs were absolute bargains, each £15 so I purchased the three pairs at the same time; my wallet suffered back in February but it was worth it as I adore them. As for the black pair below the red, I ordered those from Persunmall, they have become one of my most desirable places to buy shoes. 
       Floral booties, yay! New Look once again managed to dip into my pocket. They were on sale for £9 and would be such a great shoe for the summer festivals. The next pair makes me feel 5 again. I used to own a pair like this in white when I was younger and they used to be favourites, ran into a little nostalgia I guess. And we are back to New Look, I've worn these boots twice and cannot wait to rock them all the way through to summer (Sale price: £8). So there you have it, do I have a bit of a problem, yes so please refrain from pointing that out. Not quite sure where I'll be storing them all, IKEA here I come!
